ObamaCare Threatens Gun Owners’ Rights

There are lots of reasons for Americans to hate ObamaCare.

But gun owners should be especially concerned about this “Obamanation,” because it will allow the federal government to use our medical information to keep us from buying guns.

Just ask yourself:

* Was there a death in your family recently causing you to suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

* Do you take anxiety medications?

* Did you ever say: I had thoughts of suicide when I was dealing with stress at home or work or after my recent breakup?

* Have you voluntarily checked yourself into an institution to get counseling?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, and there is any federal nexus, then you might find yourself disarmed in the near future.

The reason is that, since 2009, the federal health database – created by section 13001 of the stimulus bill and put in place by Obamacare – will allow the federal government to troll private health records for the purpose of stripping gun rights from persons with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), PTSD, and similar maladies.

Already, more than 150,000 military veterans – perhaps as many as 165,000 – have lost their gun rights because of the “see a Veteran Administration shrink, lose your gun rights” precedent from the Clinton-Bush era.

This will be a disaster. For the people that need the help the most will no longer seek it.

That's why the politicians are exempt. Most if not all of them fall under one or more of those categories.

I actually agree with the anxiety meds part. Equal to drugs or alcohol. They alter your state of mind, positively and negatively.
